The Real Morsi?

In 2010 television interview, Egyptian president called

Jews 'bloodsuckers' who 'have no right to the land of Palestine'


In a 2010 television interview that resurfaced last week, Egyptian President Muhammad Morsi attacked Israel and Jews in shockingly derogatory and racist language, and denied Israel's right to exist.

"The Zionists have no right to the land of Palestine," Morsi says in the video provided by MEMRI. "There is no place for them on the land of Palestine. What they took before 1947-8 constitutes plunder, and what they are doing now is a continuation of this plundering."

He further refused to recognize the legitimacy of pre-1967 Israel, saying that all of the land "belongs to the Palestinians, not to the Zionists."

Using the standard term "Zionists" as code for "Jews," he also referred to Jews as "bloodsuckers" and quoted the Koranic reference to Jews as sons of "apes and pigs."
